What is the Latest WBBSE Syllabus?

Owing to the prevailing pandemic situation the educational institutions were shut down and the normal mode of study was hampered. Owing to this, the higher board of authorities has decided to reduce the syllabus by 30-35% for many subjects including English (First Language), and English (Second Language).

There are two separate English papers for the WBBSE board students. The full marks for both the papers are 100 marks each where 10 marks are allotted for the internal evaluation whereas 90 is the full marks of the examination paper for which you have to appear.

What are Few Tips to Prepare for English Examination?

  • Make sure that the basic concepts of your grammar are lucidly clear. If you do not possess a clear notion of the foundational concepts you will find it difficult to master the advanced modules.
  • You should practice the sample mock tests on a regular basis to fortify your writing skills and be familiar with the question pattern.
  • Attempt to solve previous years’ question papers within a set time in order to make sure that you are able to finish your paper on time.
  • Go through the short stories and poems several times in order to increase your vocabulary and get the spellings right.
  • Set aside a particular time of your day to read each section of your English syllabus without rushing through it.
  • Perhaps the best tip is to prepare short notes on the topics that you have learnt and revise them afterward.
